    Alright - I've read the whole thread and registered just to post here.

    I've been running this app for about a month now and it has been pretty solid. The biggest complaint is that people on the other end can't hear me well - but it is hard for me to judge how good or bad that may be. Overall it has been very good because I am usually around wifi and I don't talk on the phone very much. Perfect companion to the T Mobile $30 / 100 minute plan. Saves me a ton.

    I am looking for any cheats/shortcuts to the best settings for a Nexus S running ICS on T-Mobile. This app has so many settings that I get lost in them all. I see a couple of NS ICS posts in the last few pages and it looks like the only setting recommended is the Android Default mic setting. Anything else?

    Also - is it possible to use this app on Edge? It seem to work over Edge sometimes but I am not sure what the exact signal is when I am moving on the road.

    And finally- any work around to the Amazon App store being so slow with their app updates? I bought this on sale there and now I regret that. If not, I may need to re-buy it through the Android Market and drop Amazon for good.

    Which version of the app do you have? Version 1.2.14 has the settings we use on our Galaxy Nexus set by default. If you are using WiFi would also suggest Keep Screen Alive. If you have task killer or battery manager apps installed those could interfere with calls.

    For the Nexus S ICS leave the app defaults and change only the mic source to Android Default. That's what we've done in version 1.2.14.

    We upload the update to amazon at the same time we post it on the android market. But Amazon does their own testing and adds their copy protection before making the update available.

    I just uninstalled, rebooted, and installed the lasted version from the android market. I changed the microphone to android default, and still had the same issue. I tried each of the suggestions above, each with the same results.

    I ran a logcat while making a call, and I noticed that as soon as the call starts the following message appears in the debug window. This message repeats until the call is ended, and displays at a rate of approximately 10-20 messages per second.

    Code:

    I just tried a factory reset on my phone (T-Mobile Nexus S), and installed stock ICS 4.0.3, and I am still having this issue (audio breaking up, and latency becoming horrible). I have tried multiple wifi networks, and done everything possible to try and fix this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I'm on a low minute T-Mobile plan, so I really need to use Groove IP. Thanks in advance, and I really appreciate the software.

    Hi,

    I installed Groove IP on my Asus Transformer Prime. Using the tablet I can hear the other party fine. Unfortunatly, it is not the same story for the person on the other side. If I move the tablet slightly, the noise it makes overpowers my voice. I have spent hours changing all the settings (echo settings, microphone gain, auto processing, synchronize voice, mic buffer, etc) with no luck.

    Google voice works perfectly using my laptop. My tablet work perfectly using other applications (such as Skype). I really don't know what to do to make this work anymore. Do you have any suggestions?

    On a tablet I wouldn't use audio processing. Is the issue only when you move the tablet? Sounds like something is brushing against the mic. You can try the mic source settings, I'd suggest Android Default or VoIP.

    The app works very well. I have two suggestions.
    1. I would like to be able to change the ring. I have not been able to find that option.
    2. The app is fairly large, so I have it installed on the SDcard. This installation does not allow the app to start automatically when the phone is re-booted. I believe that this is a limitation of the Android OS. How about writing a companion app which has a tiny footprint that can be installed on the on-board memory? The tiny app can start automatically when the phone is booted. Its only task is to start the Groove IP app which resides on the SDcard. Far fetched?

    For #1 there is a ringtone override setting. Believe it's under the audio/echo settings. That will change the incoming ringtone.

    #2 is a limitation of the android os. Not sure about writing the companion app but will write that down.

    I have a Galaxy Nexus and boosting the "speaker volume" up or down seems to have no effect. The volume is still quite low compared to when I would use Google Voice in conjunction with my regular cell service. Can someone recommend Galaxy Nexus settings?

    Another note, when my phone detects my wifi it disconnects me from my 3/4g call. Perhaps it can wait until the call ends? Thanks!

    That's not controlled via the app. If the phone changes the default network then it will drop the call because you're switching networks.

    What version of the app do you have and where did you get it? What's the exact error you get? There's no error in the app that says "not registered".

    I have a few problems with grooveip and my galaxy nexus. Most important is bluetooth doesn't work at all when on calls. The bluetooth mark is green on the app and the devices are paired, but everything still comes out of the phone's speaker. If i try disable the bluetooth mid call, the app crashes everytime and i get a grooveip closing error. I even did a factory reset, redownloaded, and the problem persists.

    Other than that I've had tons of problems with the call quality. Just realized there are lots of settings to adjust so will try play around with that before complaining further

    Sometime after android 4.0 they started requiring a new permission for bluetooth. We have a new beta on our facebook page that adds that permission. Prior versions, like the market version, won't work with bluetooth on the Galaxy Nexus because we never added that permission.

    Also, would suggest trying to change only the mic source first. Try both the Android Default and VoIP settings and let me know which one works best for you, or if it helps at all.

    Easiest way would be to copy the apk onto your phone, or just download it from your phone. Then browse to the file with some file manager app and click on the file. That should prompt you to install. I am working on posting that officially, should be up tomorrow.

    I've been trying a few different options since I have been having issues with Groove IP. I had the same issue (clicking noises in the background of the call, and progressively growing latency). I did manage to mostly fix this by switching the sip protocol from tcp to udp. I'm not sure what groove ip is set to (or if you even have a choice), but switching it to udp seems to fix the growing latency issue.

    I still get the clicking noises, and short amounts of dropped audio, but the call seems to work reasonably well.

    I'm on a Nexus S running ICS.

    GrooVe IP doesn't use sip. It's a direct XMPP connection. The signalling uses TCP, but all audio traffic is UDP

    Hi, I recently got this app for my mom and seem to be having trouble with it. I created a Google Voice account for her, got her a number, verified everything etc, calls work over WiFi, but there is an issue with incoming audio/voice/sound from my moms phone. For instance, from my moms phone, I open the Groove IP dialpad, dial our house number, the phone rings, I pick up and when I talk through both phones, I can only hear voice through our house phone. It's as if the speaker is broken in my moms cellphone and can't get any audio or sound to come through. I've tried different settings but to no avail, no sound comes through.

    Now, when I call her Google Voice number through our house phone, her cell phone rings and I answer it and then I am able to hear sound through her cellphone from the house phone. So for some reason when calling FROM the cellphone, TO another phone, there is no audio on the cell phone. But when calling TO the cellphone FROM another phone, audio works and can hear on both ends.

    Sorry if this was confusing to anybody. Hope someone can help me out there.


    EDIT: Nevermind, it seems ticking the "Synchronize Voice" option made it work. I can now hear on both ends.

    What type of phone? Is it stock? Let me know and I'll update the default settings for that device.
